Question about what happens when Anthem shuts down.

★★★★ Novice

so, I've been watching this very interesting video:

now, my question is, when Anthem finally shuts down (I assume in a few months the way it is going), will EA and Bioware refund any one that actually bought the game??
or are the 6 years of development going to be added to the 10 years Anthem was supposed to be running??

@MaireDevylin but lets see if we can get someone official to put that in print.

Re: Question about what happens when Anthem shuts down.

It is true that games with online components are finite.

 

Of BioWare's games with such components:

 

  • Mass Effect 3 multiplayer (7 years)
  • Dragon Age Inquisition multiplayer (5 years)
  • Mass Effect Andromeda (2 years)

All are still running (though Mass Effect 3 is probably the most active)

 

When these games eventually stop being available to play it will be because technology has long moved on or that an insignificant number of people remain that want to play them.

 

In the meantime, whether Anthem builds a growing player base or whether it doesn't, there seems no likelihood that this game will 'shut down' for many years.

Psst! You forgot SWTOR, which just got another update, and which people have been claiming is dead since a few weeks after its release in 2011.

It's definitely healthier to spend time with things you love than to dwell on things you don't like.

I'm just sharing my perspectives which are hardly unique. What's the problem with that?

 

You can put a different opinion of course by sharing yours, but why is it right to laugh at mine?
